West Cottage description

West Cottage is a charming end-terraced holiday cottage situated right on the shore in Southerness with magnificent and uninterrupted views out to sea and of the lighthouse, one of the oldest in Scotland, which stands 17 metres tall.

Dumfries and Galloway, declared the BBC’s Countryfile Magazine Holiday Destination of the Year 2015, has many lovely coastal villages with Southerness being among one of the most popular. The village has to the north the magnificent backdrop of Criffel, 570 metres high. Take a hike to the top to take in the simply breathtaking views.

If golf is your thing then you have come to the right place. Just 500m away is the world famous Championship Links Course. Sea fishing is available just 50 yards from the cottage. Warmed by the Gulf Stream there are many beautiful gardens to visit including Threave Gardens at Castle Douglas and Scotland’s most exotic Logan Botanic Gardens. When darkness falls over Dumfries and Galloway it unveils a secret treasure, the Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park, the UK’s first official Dark Sky Park where more than 7000 stars and planets are visible with the naked eye. Dalbeattie Forest 7Stanes Trails is a must for cyclists and mountain bikers. There are many lovely little villages and towns to explore including the waterfront village of Kippford to the slightly larger towns of Dalbeattie, Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright. Kirkcudbright puts on a spectacular event in August where creative performances conclude with a lone piper serenading the crowds and fireworks are let off, The Tattoo and fireworks event is something not be missed!

West Cottage can be booked together with Craig Na Mara (CC537240) to accommodate up to 17 guests.
